AmplifiedAmber Ale.......

Hello all.  Racked the Amber to secondary and had a taste.  Wow!  Extremely dry though.  So I added brown sugar to the secondary.  Still have activity and small krausen.  It was 8.2% ABV at secondary racking.  After adding the brown sugar syrup, the gravity bumped up from 1.028 to 1.044.  So the yeast is still gobbling the up the brown sugar!  May not be able to bottle for maybe another week.  Didn't dry hop yet as the bitterness seemed higher than I wanted, but after the addition of the sugar it will tame down.  I'll check another reading in a few days to see where it is.  Thanks for reading!  Cheers!  Steve
